Burt Township


The forthcoming Spectrum fiber internet installation for our area has been separated into two parts.  These include the standard retail area, and the sector being funded by the ROBIN Grant for Cheboygan County.  Burt Township falls under the ROBIN Grant segment.

According to the Charter Communications State Government Affairs Office as it pertains to the ROBIN Grant segment:

  • Construction on this project has not started – teams are doing field work now then will apply for the required permits ~ we expect construction to begin late 2024.
  • ROBIN project grant areas must be built and activated with service by 12/31/26.

As services are activated, customers will have access to all Spectrum services, including Spectrum Gigabit Broadband, Spectrum TV, Spectrum Voice, and Spectrum Mobile.

Additionally, a new Verizon cellular tower is now set be erected on Township property just north of the west side transfer station off Indian Road.  The 200’ tower will provide 5G cellular and internet service to the local area.  Construction is planned for some time in 2024.  Further updates will be posted here as details are finalized.
